LOCAL WORKFORCE PROFILE
The Local Workforce Profile is a regional resource for the disability services sector that provides an overview of available population, labour force and supply data for each region. This report will help to enable discussion, planning and further investigations into supply and demand issues for key occupations that are projected to increase as a result of the NDIS rollout.
Reports will be developed for each region as the NDIS is rolled out across the state.

Are you wondering what the NDIS will mean for your workforce?
With the transition to the NDIS and the introduction of new models of service delivery, there will likely be substantial changes to the workforce in the disability sector. From experience in trial sites workforce issues are one of the biggest challenges for organisations transitioning to the NDIS. In Queensland, it is expected that between 15,900 and 19,400 additional jobs will be created as a result of the NDIS rollout across the state.
NDIS providers in Queensland will have the opportunity to contribute to relevant and meaningful data by providing key information about their workforce through utilising the online Workforce Wizard tool. Workforce Wizard allows organisations to enter data on their workforces on a regular quarterly basis and benchmark against other similar workforces. Participating organisations will receive benchmark reports on trends such as rates of turnover, ratios in types of employment, and rates of utilisation.
Workforce Wizard now offers State and Territory benchmarks, and for Queensland users it offers the opportunity to enter and track workforce data at a regional level. This regional data will help organisations to obtain a better picture of the workforce as NDIS rolls out across the state.
The data and intelligence generated through Workforce Wizard will form part of an evolving evidence base to guide and inform future planning for the NDIS workforce across Queensland.
